Well This Has Never Happened Before....

Today we were doing public witnessing at a local supermarket when we had a new experience.

Although we are in the English congregation, when we have the cart out, the majority of people who are interested and take literature speak/read only Spanish. Even when we are doing the search work in the territory, we start our presentations in Spanish. However, as you all know, Zach and I don't speak much Spanish, and quite obviously are not locals.

Well today, I was practicing reading the Watchtower in Spanish while we sat there and maybe that was part of what this lady picked up on, but she was looking at the cart and starts talking to us in Spanish, Zach replied and told her everything was gratis (free) so she picks up one of the books and notices it's in English. So in perfect English she says "Oh, you speak English too?" in a very surprised voice. Then goes on to ask us where we are from, etc. But her first inclination was to speak to us in Spanish, she didn't think we knew English, and our Spanish wasn't bad enough to give us away.

That totally made my day. Almost a year and we are starting to fit in. Speaking of, we have been back in Honduras for almost a whole year! Time goes by so fast.
